Summary0005496: msfpc - Fix usage example
g0tmi1k@kali-dev:~$ msfpc
 [*] MSFvenom Payload Creator (MSFPC v1.4.5)

 [i] Missing TYPE or BATCH/LOOP mode

   Example: /usr/bin/msfpc windows # Windows & manual IP.
            /usr/bin/msfpc elf bind eth0 4444 # Linux, eth0's IP & manual port.
            /usr/bin/msfpc stageless cmd py https # Python, stageless command prompt.
            /usr/bin/msfpc verbose loop eth1 # A payload for every type, using eth1's IP.
            /usr/bin/msfpc msf batch wan # All possible Meterpreter payloads, using WAN IP.
            /usr/bin/msfpc help verbose # Help screen, with even more information.

 Rather than putting <DOMAIN/IP>, you can do a interface and MSFPC will detect that IP address.
 Missing <DOMAIN/IP> will default to the IP menu.

 Missing <PORT> will default to 443.

 <CMD> is a standard/native command prompt/terminal to interactive with.
 <MSF> is a custom cross platform shell, gaining the full power of Metasploit.
 Missing <CMD/MSF> will default to <MSF> where possible.

 <BIND> opens a port on the target side, and the attacker connects to them. Commonly blocked with ingress firewalls rules on the target.
 <REVERSE> makes the target connect back to the attacker. The attacker needs an open port. Blocked with engress firewalls rules on the target.
 Missing <BIND/REVERSE> will default to <REVERSE>.

 <STAGED> splits the payload into parts, making it smaller but dependent on Metasploit.
 <STAGELESS> is the complete standalone payload. More 'stable' than <STAGED>.
 Missing <STAGED/STAGELESS> will default to <STAGED> where possible.

 <TCP> is the standard method to connecting back. This is the most compatible with TYPES as its RAW. Can be easily detected on IDSs.
 <HTTP> makes the communication appear to be HTTP traffic (unencrypted). Helpful for packet inspection, which limit port access on protocol - e.g. TCP 80.
 <HTTPS> makes the communication appear to be (encrypted) HTTP traffic using as SSL. Helpful for packet inspection, which limit port access on protocol - e.g. TCP 443.
 <FIND_PORT> will attempt every port on the target machine, to find a way out. Useful with stick ingress/engress firewall rules. Will switch to 'allports' based on <TYPE>.
 Missing <TCP/HTTP/HTTPS/FIND_PORT> will default to <TCP>.

 <BATCH> will generate as many combinations as possible: <TYPE>, <CMD + MSF>, <BIND + REVERSE>, <STAGED + STAGELESS> & <TCP + HTTP + HTTPS + FIND_PORT>
 <LOOP> will just create one of each <TYPE>.

 <VERBOSE> will display more information.

Can we drop `/usr/bin/`?
